I bought a real camera for me: a Nikon D40 – which is, according to many, many people, is the best DSLR out there. I could not ever EVER got close to those pictures with all my previous cameras. I found out that it came with some dust on its sensor. So the next step was to start thinking like a computer geek.
So another option was to clean the dust in gimp. Manually… and it is needless to say that this approach is.. well.. boring, time-consuming and pretty much futile.
However, when all the hope was, apparently, lost, the Great Google Gods sent me a wonderful link to the Resynthesizer plugin – which is AMAZINGLY EFFICIENT in solving the dust issues.
